BERLIN (AP) — A survivor of the Holocaust and a young Jewish immigrant have spoken about their lives in Germany at a special parliamentary session commemorating the victims of the Holocaust 76 years after the Soviet army liberated the Auschwitz death camp in occupied Poland. Eighty-eight-year-old Charlotte Knobloch and 33-year-old Marina Weisband told lawmakers on International Holocaust Remembrance Day how their lives as Jews in Germany are still far from normal almost eight decades after the Nazis murdered 6 million European Jews in the Shoah. Following their speeches, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and others bore witness in the parliament’s prayer room on Wednesday as a rabbi put the final touches on a restored Thora scroll.

And many of them face serious financial hardships that are exacerbated by their low incomes. Impoverished Americans endure higher banking and check cashing fees, along with greater court costs. Additionally, they tend to pay more for groceries, as they don’t have the disposable income needed to buy in bulk. With most of their income devoted to housing, transportation and food, poor people have little money remaining for unplanned expenses and emergencies.“It’s not just how much things cost, it’s the time,” said Randy Albelda, economics professor at the University of Massachusetts in Boston. “It takes three buses to get to work, or your car breaks down, and all those things take more time…. Middle income people buy time by purchasing healthy prepared foods or having someone clean their house. Without any extra time, it’s hard to get ahead.” continue reading »

Given how many we make throughout the day, I bet most of us believe that we are. But our process for those “important” decisions could likely be more efficient.We often tackle big, important decisions by bringing together a group of people, exploring different approaches and outcomes, and debating their merits before actually moving forward with a plan of action. And that’s not even taking into account second-guesses or backtracking that is common when making a business decision.Don’t get me wrong – discussing an issue and developing a response is not a bad way to approach decision-making. But a survey from management consulting firm McKinsey & Company revealed that almost half of C-suite executives believe more than half the time they spend making decisions is ineffective. In response, the company provided three strategies to help leaders make better decisions – and do it faster:Make decisions at the right level. It can be hard to delegate, but a president or CEO of a company can’t make every decision – that is a huge misuse of time. Ensuring managers and employees are empowered to make decisions within their purview will result in a more efficient and effective process.
The car is decked out with present boxes, elves, ornaments and lights, giving riders a unique riding experience this winter. (WBNG) — Most people order Uber rides just to get from point A to point B, but this holiday season, one Uber driver is spreading a little holiday cheer with your ride. “This year I re-did it. The only thing that’s the same are the lights. All the other decorations I changed this year,” Southee said. Southee said the decorations haven’t stayed the same each year, updating and upgrading. “Right around Thanksgiving that feeling starts to come, that anticipation: Christmas, New Year’s,” Southee said. “I just love this time of the year.” Helping to leave a lasting impression of kindness this holiday season. “Riders when they experience it, they remember this car, they remember this experience and they take it with them,” Southee said. John B. Southee, Jr. has been driving Uber in the Southern Tier since July 2017, and for the last three years, he’s taken his holiday excitement to the next level by decorating his car with Christmas gear. Southee told 12 News the car costs less than $100 to decorate, but he’s more focused on spreading happiness. “I’ve had riders get in my car and tell me they hate Christmas, but then by the time the ride is over, they swear up and down they are now in the Christmas spirit,” Southee said with a laugh. Uber’s corporate office has been in touch with Southee in regards to his ride, expressing their love and thanks for his ability to spread joy and connect with riders. “That’s very touching that something as simple as putting a little effort into this, into an Uber ride can give people that sort of reaction,” Southee said. “It just keeps inspiring me to keep doing this.” “They Snapchat it when they get in the car,” Southee said. “The riders just love it. The comments go on and on.” Scrolling through his past comments and ratings on his rides, the comments echo a similar sentiment: riders love and appreciate the Christmas-themed Uber car and its driver.

Davis believes the classification of essential and non-essential businesses has created a divide in the community, and that for some families, a job is essential no matter what it is. “I’m not anymore essential than you or any other person that is trying to feed their family,” Davis said. “If people can’t feed their families, then their job is essential.” Some protestors could be seen not wearing masks and not following social distancing recommendations set forth by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. “I want to go back to work. My freedoms were taken away,” Wunderlich said. “It’s been hard because we’ve been sitting here for five weeks trying to get unemployment, and the state is just in gridlock.” Wunderlich also expressed concern for areas like hers. The protest was organized by Christopher Davis, who has been a resident of Broome County his entire life, and hoped the protest would inspire people to voice their opinions. Wearing masks in public when you cannot maintain social distance is a mandate from Governor Andrew Cuomo. Barbara Wunderlich is from Elmira and participated in the protest today as she is looking to return to her job in science and technology in Corning. Davis says it’s up to people to decide what’s best for their own health. “The humans that live in New York should be able to make their own wise decisions,” Davis said. “My hope and my aim is that these people would raise their voice and make sure that they’re not being silenced.” BINGHAMTON (WBNG) – Dozens of people gathered outside of Binghamton City Hall, protesting the mandates and rules put in place throughout the county and state during the COVID-19 pandemic. “I want the legislators to know that Binghamton has a voice. These people have a voice, and if they’re not going to listen, then we’re going to be out here every week,” Davis said. “Upstate is different. We’re not [New York] city. We are a region. We’ll stay in recession for years after this blows away,” she said. The organizer hoping local leaders listen and make changes.

The 76-year-old, who signed players including Brazilian Roberto Carlos and hired Fabio Capello as manager during his five-year tenure, is said to be “serious” at the Jimenez Diaz Foundation in Madrid. Lorenzo Sanz won the Champions League twice as Real Madrd president His son Fernando, a former Real Madrid player, told Spanish media he had tried to treat himself at home so he didn’t put the hospital system under strain before his condition worsened, adding: “We are quite worried. “My dad had a fever for eight days and was taking paracetamol. “He got worse because he couldn’t breathe properly. He was admitted to hospital with a lack of oxygen in his blood. They’ve told my mum he was bad.” His other son Lorenzo added in a social media post on Tuesday night: “Overwhelmed by the displays of affection you’re all sending. “I’m sure my dad is going to get through this. Thank you to everyone.” Diabetic dad-of-five Mr Sanz, who was replaced by current president Florentino Perez in 2005, hired former England boss Capello as manager in his first full season in charge.

Chelsea are determined to make themselves serial contenders for the Barclays Premier League title again under Jose Mourinho, according to striker Samuel Eto’o. Press Association The Portuguese coach had been linked with taking charge at PSG after he left Real Madrid. Mourinho, though, is settled into London life again. “I am very, very, very happy, I am at a club that represents for me more than a club,” said the 51-year-old. “I have a special relationship with Chelsea and it is a project that I love. “I could work in France in the future, why not? “I did not say no, or yes (to PSG), there was not a true, direct offer. “We met, I had the honour of visiting the Emir at his house in Qatar three or four years ago, before he bought the club. “We have a respectful relationship, but after Real Madrid, I said to everyone what I wanted to do which was to return to England. “I want to stay, I have four years on my contract and after that we will see.” Chelsea will come face to face with former striker Didier Drogba at the Turk Telekom Arena in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie. Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder was part of Mourinho’s Inter Milan side which won the 2010 European Cup, and revealed he had taken a “crafty” phone call from his former manager ahead of the last 16 showdown. Speaking in the Turkish media, Sneijder said: “Just two minutes after the draw, the phone rang and it was none other than Jose Mourinho. “He asked some crafty questions about team tactics, players, trying to obtain information, but he could not fool me – I have played football for many years and know what is being asked and what to say. “We will see how the team plays and if we can beat them.” The Blues head out to Turkey for Wednesday’s Champions League showdown against Galatasaray still a point clear at the top of the table after a dramatic late win over Everton at Stamford Bridge. Mourinho has continued to stress the need for long-term consistency to regain the Premier League supremacy which his side enjoyed under his last tenure. Eto’o insists everyone’s focus is the same. Speaking on the club’s official website, www.chelseafc.com, he said: “We have never thought that we can’t win the title, but Jose Mourinho came to Chelsea to do big things for the long run which he is trying to do. “We players believe that it is possible, but at the same time it is not our mission. “Right now we are not thinking about other teams or the end of the season, we are just focused on our next game and that is Galatasaray.” Eto’o joined Chelsea from Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala to join up with his old Inter Milan coach once again, and the 32-year-old used social media site Instagram to deny he was set to leave Stamford Bridge in the summer. Whatever happens over the final weeks of the campaign, Mourinho will again look to strengthen the Chelsea squad over the summer However, speaking to French TV channel Canal Plus, the Blues boss ruled out any possibility of a swap deal with Paris St Germain involving Edison Cavani and Belgian starlet Eden Hazard. “Eden is our boy. He is the player we want to have for 10 years, and we want to build the team around Eden,” Mourinho said. “His style of football is what we want.” Mourinho also played down suggestions Chelsea may look to bring Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, describing it as “Mission Impossible”.
